Big Brother &The Holding Company, along with bands like The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Quicksilver Messenger Service, is considered one of the original, first wave of great psychedelic bands that came out of San Francisco in the summer of 1965.
Since 1987 Big Brother and the Holding has toured continuously in the US, Canada, Europe and Asia. Though they have lost two of the four ‘originals’ (James Gurley 2009 and Sam Andrew 2015) Peter and Dave continue to have fun playing and presenting the music of Big Brother and the Holding Co to the world.
The songs from Cheap Thrills and their first Mainstream album are now a part of Rock Music history. Their legacy as one of the great bands of the 1960s is secure. In their shows they perform all of their legendary songs; “Piece of My Heart”, “Summertime”, “Ball and Chain”, “Bye Bye Baby” as only the original creators of this music can. And to show that Big Brother is still a living, creative band they throw in a taste of new, original material that embodies the same signature, Big Brother ideas and energy.
